In China, after several years of success of the “classic” version of InfoComm in Beijing, will be inaugurated in September 2018 the new edition in Chengdu, a widespread metropolis especially for the pro-AV and communication technologies markets
Slated to run from 11-13 September 2018, Chengdu InfoComm China will offer participating exhibitors, businesses and manufacturers new opportunities to tap into the lucrative Western China and Belt & Road Initiative (BRI) markets. Due to low production costs, a government that is supportive of information and communication technology (ICT) companies and the rapid growth of ICT investment, Western China is predicted to produce 25% of China’s total ICT output by 2025. Business-friendly policies to encourage future development, including strategies to develop specific industries such as software, IT, electronics and information, have been put in place at the national and domestic level.
In terms of infrastructure, Western China represents the thriving metropolis. Indeed, the Chengdu InfoComm China venue — the Western China International Expo City — is an expansive, modern, well-equipped facility which represents the ascent of the city as a venue for high-end global exhibitions.
Rising in parallel alongside Western China is the anticipated explosive growth in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) markets. BRI, spearheaded by China President Xi Jinping in 2013 to create a linked community across Asia, Africa and Europe, signals the start of a wave of economic opportunity as it will allow businesses to access an estimated US 21 trillion GDP and 4,4 billion people spread across 65 countries.
Concurrently, the public-private partnership (PPP) model, which was adopted for BRI projects, has already drawn over 5,4 trillion RMB worth of investments from private companies for 4.263 PPP projects.
Richard Tan, Executive Director of InfoCommAsia and the organizer of InfoComm China, said: “For the first time, Chengdu InfoComm China will offer exhibitors a valuable platform to pitch their products and solutions to an expanding market of users in Western China as well as the BRI countries. These markets promise to be amongst the most dynamic and fast-growing worldwide and can drive business growth for years to come.”
